The practice of gratitude can improve your physical and psychological health, lower blood pressure, improve immune function and heart health, enhance empathy, reduce aggression, help you sleep better, improve your self-esteem, and increase your mental strength, according to Robert A. Emmons, professor of psychology at UC Davis and a leading scientific expert on the science of gratitude.
Perhaps the next time you’re feeling stressed or challenged, you can refocus your mind on someone or something you feel grateful for. Just thinking about what you appreciate stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, calms the body, and decreases cortisol levels. Being thankful is more than good manners: it is good medicine!
Did you know that the ICWIB! scribbling activities are designed to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which calms the body? The ICWIB! Program teaches children and adults how to restore balance to their systems and reframe perspectives to experience more gratitude.
If you’re curious how something as simple as scribbling can have such a remarkable impact on our behavior and biology, then we invite you to explore some of the ICWIB! art activities and videos for FREE.
Also, in a recent interview, Dr. Bruce Lipton said, “…Freedom is the ability to create without the limitation of generational programming. The I Create What I Believe! (ICWIB!) Program is a gateway and a pathway into a new and better future because it allows children to fully express themselves and to not be limited by the beliefs that have been passed down from generation to generation. This program also frees up children’s minds and allows their creative nature to create a better world for all of us, which is what we need right now!…”
Final note: I would like you to know that we are currently in the process of putting the ICWIB training up online so that it is easy for anyone anywhere in the world to receive and benefit from the ICWIB Training. We will keep you posted on when it will be available.
